elastic wrist

snap snap snap at the skin

I spend days 

Building solid walls 

Full of concrete  

Sturdy by repetition 

This is not my first structure 

I’ve built around you  

But here you come 

Seven words softly spoken 

Crashing down every barrier 

I’ve ever built  

How do you manage 

To sneak in every time 

Like you belong here?  

You do not pay rent 

You do not pay attention 

And all I ever do is pay  


i create
